The Ohio State defense has featured rotations for years. In 2016 and 2017, four NFL defensive ends rotated, keeping each other fresh. The thought being that if you've got talent, why not play it? Some positions don't allow for a rotation, but playing defense at the pace that the Buckeyes want, makes rotation paramount. You can see...

I'd settle for one first team defense!

This is a great philosophy when you have as much depth as OSU. This is also why it is important to play as fast as possible to maximize the number of plays in a game. The more snaps you can get for more guys, the better development you get and the happier the players. In this day of transfers, this makes sense when you have the depth of talent that we have. I liked how Tressel was able to give the second team O-line a series or two in the first half of games against most teams. We already do a great job of rotating recievers and RBs with effectively two first teams. Now how do we get meaningful snaps for a second QB to help stem the tide of all the QB transfers?

But the third first team defense is just as good.
